obama comes into office is a country that is culturally getting ready to support gay people but there are no laws that support them in anyway. but politically in washington we were just grossly behind the times, and i think what you see in those years is -- you know, a deep freeze that starts to thaw very quickly when it starts to thaw. but those constitutional mare page mangedments got just ahead of the wave and locked in homophobia and discrimination just ahead of the wave of public opinion. >> bill: yeah, i think it was maybe 45% just a couple of years ago. >> yeah, in 2008 it was between like 38 and 42 even. even among republicans here it says that -- that even though there's only 34% of republicans there this poll support same-sex marriage. it is still up 18 points since 2004. that's still an inamazing amount of progression. >> bill: and do you attribute it to the fact that everybody discovers they have a gay son, daughter, niece, or something like that. >> yep. >> bill: and maybe the electorate are getting younger and young people don't buy the argu

but also the there's been a disengagement on the part of the obama administration itself. >> woodruff: what do you mean? >> they view iraq as just another country. they don't have the same emotional or psychological or even foreign policy stake in it that the previous administration had. so i think the united states can't solve all the problems in iraq certainly but it's not playing as active role in mediating these internal issues. >> woodruff: what's the relationship rajiv between the people of iraq and their government. how is that working? >> depends on which people. for the majority shiite population they see the government has largely working in their interests. the others look at the government and say these people aren't here to help me and serve me. i think there is a desire among many iraqis for a big tent, more secular government. but that's not the shape of the political system that they have today. in my view this is a result of the legacy of the american occupation and our military intervention there. the decisions made almost ten years ago today deba'ath phiing the country, e

this country we had a vigorous debate. president obama laid out his vision of how we deal with some of our big challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those ar

country. the rebels immediately denied those claims and instead accused the syrian regime of launching the attack. president obama has made clear in the past that in his view, the use of chemical weapons by either side in syria would change the rules for our involvement in syria. chief washington correspondent james rosen is live from the white house with more. >> the pentagon has been more definitive than the white house telling us they have yet no confirmation, no confirmation that chemical weapons have been used by either side in the syrian civil war, it was syrian state-run television that first made the allegation, broadcasting images purporting to show the victims of the chemical attack being treated near the syrian border. assadd blamed the rebels and the white house stated there is no evidence the rebels used such weapons and the officials here are deeply skeptical of such claims by the regime. >> i can tell you that we are assessing the reports about the possible use of chemical weapons, as well as the reports about the origins of possible chemical weapons in syria. and no o

that began 10 years ago when president george w. bush launched a war of choice in iraq. dragging our country into a costly, bitter conflict based on falsehoods and hyperbole. it took president obama fulfilling his campaign promise to end the iraq war and we are grateful that he brought the war to an end. but we must not forget how we got into the war in the first place. so that these mistakes are not repeated. we were told there were weapons of mass destruction. we were warned about mushroom clouds. now i offered an amendment at the time that would have taken us down a different path. it would have required the united states to work through the united nations inspectors and maximizing diplomacy to determine whether or not iraq was developing weapons of mass destruction. unfortunately my amendment failed by a vote of 72-355. what happened from there we all know the tragic consequences. president bush dragged this country into an unnecessary war. no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. the cost of the iraq war soared far beyond what was projected. we lost 4,400 american troops in iraq
